V1 - FT1 & AFS Lens - Why only single point focus?
8 months ago

Why is it that the V1 goes to single point focus when the FT-1 is added? (Thx to Nikon for the AF-C!) I was just reading on the mirror-less side and with adapters they don't seem to have this limitation.  Is Nikon crippling this on purpose?

All of the focus stuff is on the sensor & it is a mirror-less camera right? Why should it matter what glass is in front? All of the focus points did not just disappear from the sensor...
